BibTex Conversion for Export to RefWorks

Effective July 1, 2016, the University Library is cancelling its subscription to RefWorks. More information about this decision and options for moving your RefWorks content to another citation management tool are outlined in this RefWorks Transition Guide: http://guides.library.illinois.edu/refworkstransitionUIUC . Please contact the Library’s Citation Management Working Group at refworks@library.illinois.edu with any questions or requests for assistance.

To import BibTeX-formatted citations, you will need to create a text file listing all the BibTeX records, but with the quotation marks removed.

To do this, copy and paste the BibTeX records from some source database. Usually you will have to do this one by one, for each citation. In the example below, the records came from searching theSPIRES-HEP database for articles pertaining to QED3 . After you have a text file with all the desired BibTeX records, remove the quotation marks from the file, and save it as a txt file. This is the file you will import into RefWorks.

Example of a raw BibTeX file, before the quotation marks have been removed:

@Article{Hoshino:2006sx,
author = "Hoshino, Yuichi",
title = "Determination of the propagator in QED(3) by spectral
function",
year = "2006",
eprint = "hep-th/0610016",
SLACcitation = "%%CITATION = HEP-TH 0610016;%%"
}

@Article{Thomas:2006bj,
author = "Thomas, Iorwerth Owain and Hands, Simon",
title = "Chiral symmetry restoration in anisotropic QED(3)",
year = "2006",
eprint = "hep-lat/0609062",
SLACcitation = "%%CITATION = HEP-LAT 0609062;%%"
}

@Article{Dalmazi:2006jw,
author = "Dalmazi, D. and Mendonca, Elias L.",
title = "Static potential in scalar QED(3) with non-minimal
coupling",
journal = "J. Phys.",
volume = "A39",
year = "2006",
pages = "11091-11099",
eprint = "hep-th/0608212",
SLACcitation = "%%CITATION = HEP-TH 0608212;%%"

}

Example of the left file, after the quotation marks have been removed, using NotePad's "replace" option. Save the file, and it is ready for import into Refworks.
